Know Your Value is a nationwide program that was launched in partnership by NBCUniversal News Group and Mika Brzezinski, author of Knowing Your Value and co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe.  The program is focused on providing tangible, relatable advice that empowers women and men to achieve their own vision of success.  Through its partnership with Comcast NBCUniversal, Independence is the first employer in the region to launch a customized KYV program.

The program’s curriculum focuses on three Independence values critical to achieving our corporate strategy ? Accountability, Courage, and Empowerment.  Additional focus on a key part of our corporate mission — enhancing well-being — is woven throughout the program, to promote achieving the balance needed for success both in and outside of the workplace.
KYV benefits Independence by supporting continuing efforts to foster a diverse and inclusive workforce, reinforcing our commitment to help our people grow and learn, enriching associate engagement through meaningful workplace experiences, and fostering associate relationships across all levels and lines of business.
KYV benefits Independence participants by helping them create and achieve their own versions of success, feel confident at work, feel comfortable advocating for themselves, take positive action in managing their careers, and seek leadership opportunities from their current seat or in a new role.
